I was expecting him to be perfect last night, but no such luck. Last night he told us he wanted to sit in his little chair instead of his big chair. So we pulled up the little chair, and of course he immediately started asking for his big chair. We put him in his little chair, and he carried on about wanting the big chair for about 30 minutes. Then he got to sit on the naughty stool for standing in his little chair. He was there for about another 30 minutes because of the crying, whining, and getting up off of the naughty stool. No dinner again for the second night!
I'm sure that the teachers from Primrose think that I'm talking about another child. I'm so happy that Jacob behaves perfectly for you all! And honestly, I feel that if this is the worst thing he does, then we don't have that big of a problem.
I've been trying to get video of the boys dancing so that I can post a tribute to MJ, but they don't dance or shake their @$$es like the little girls.
I took a nap Saturday afternoon after everything was over. I guess everything really wore me out. Sunday Brian and I played with our kids a lot. We would have small spurts of work, but overall we just spent time with the kiddos. It was so nice!
Yesterday was a crazy day. It started with my getting up at 5:00, rushing around the house to do everything I needed to do before I left for work, and leaving the house at 7:20 which is 20 minutes late. I felt so defeated! I'll spare you the rest of the details but basically nothing went as planned. I worked hard all day on various things to make something happen only for it to not happen at all! Frustrating. So when Brian asked me to get the boys from school, I was thrilled! I had the best time with my babies last night! Go figure...this morning I barely watched the clock, got both boys dressed, pumped, fed Andrew, got myself ready for work, and I was right on time!
Our July 4th weekend was GREAT! Friday we took Andrew to school and took Jacob to the zoo. It was so hot at the zoo, but he loved it! We decided to get season passes. We only had to buy them for Brian and me because Jacob gets in free. Brian and Jacob went back on Sunday because Jacob told Brian he wanted to go to the "goo." Here are a few pics from the zoo.
Then Friday night we had date night. We went to dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and got to experience a few kid-free hours. Thanks to Grandmother for watching the munchkins for us!
The rest of the weekend I spent cleaning. It sounds bad, doesn't it? It was actually great! Brian took the kids out of the house so that I could work undisturbed. Now the real chore will be to keep it up! But since we only have a couple of clutter spots now instead of a lot, I think we'll do okay. Let's see how long it is before I post another blog like this.
Andrew is 3 months old today! I cannot believe it! He is such a good baby, and he has adjusted to daycare pretty well. He has stepped up his sleep to 7.5 - 8 hours a night. He loves bath time, and he is extremely chatty! I think he is starting the teething process because he is drooling everywhere, and he has these random fussy fits. The other day he literally cried and screamed for an hour and a half. Then he fell asleep, and he was fine! He loves Jacob, too! I'm so happy that both boys are so happy and like each other so much!
Finally, today is our 4 year wedding anniversary! I love the life we have built together so far and cannot wait to see what lies ahead for us. I still love and adore Brian as much as I did the first day we met!
